Indiana Students: No Gays at Prom

A group of several students, parents, and at least one teacher at Sullivan High School in Sullivan, Indiana, is lobbying for a “traditional prom” that would ban gay students from attending. Administrators at Sullivan High School are not in support of the movement, so the group is considering the possibility of a “separate but equal” prom at which no gays will be allowed. “We want to make the public see that we love the homosexuals, but we don’t think it’s right nor should it be accepted,” said student Bonnie McCammon. A countercampaign has been launched by those who believe prom should be enjoyed by all students, and one gay student spoke in support of the school, calling it very accepting of same-sex couples and gay students.
